Escapes to Palgrave
Nigel explores DeerFields Stables Country Inn [www.deerfields.ca] and their Age Management Centre.

This quiet country retreat has all the facilities, including extraordinary Gypsy Vanner horses, to enable guests to focus on healthy lifestyles.

DID YOU KNOW…

The Gypsy Vanner horse was bred in the British Isles by the Roma people who needed a sturdy horse to pull their wagons and was only recognized as a separate breed in 1996. However, the name is an invention of US breeders and in Britain & Ireland they are more commonly called gypsy cobs.
